Dan is a Hydrodynamic/Wave Modeler working alongside Dr. Dmitry Beletsky (CIGLR) and the Lake Champlain team on a hydrodynamic model and forecasting system for the lake. He did his graduate work at the Large Lakes Observatory in Duluth focusing on physical processes in Lake Superior, with an emphasis on winter conditions. Dan has experience on both the modeling and observational sides of Great Lakes research and holds a PH.D. in Water Resources Science from the University of Minnesota – Duluth.
